Did you know only 9% of plastic waste produced has been recycled? That more than 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic have been produced since the early 1950s with approximately 60% now in landfills or in our natural habitat? ~ UNenvironment.org
Thanks to our Youth4Growth Team who delivered high impacting environment awareness activities. Guess what? The kids planted our first tree at our host school. The ChiYoWo Team simply Rock ~ it’s how we Give Back. Hugs to our Home and our Planet.

Uber Driver: Ma, why do you go to hard to reach areas like this one. Don’t you think more people want to collaborate with you if you work with only high ranking and profiled schools
Me (Toks): Maybe you are right but if we all concentrate on those schools who will reach the forgotten children and their schools?
3 hours later – Principal of host school: Thank you very much ChiYoWo for visiting our school! We love all the activities and how you interacted with our school and the 2 visiting schools. Thanks for the lovely books. May God bless you and your team richly…please don’t forget us and be sure to visit us again.
